We are entering into a potent 4 week karmic cycle. Today’s New Moon partial Solar Eclipse is in Cancer, the Mother / Father provider of nourishment and safe passage and opens the month long Eclipse cycle.
With this starting point being in Cancer and opposing Pluto, it feels to me like a time where we are asked to go deep but we are given safe passage, we are guided in, we are invited to be with the intensity as though the Great Mother / Father were there with us without judgement and with unconditional love holding our hand.
Over this next month you may find yourself asking questions like:
What really is the purpose of this life? What does it really mean to be
New moon = seeding new intentions, hope, vision. New moon in Pisces conjunct Chiron = new seeds and cycles regarding the potential for healing old wounds that may have been coming up recently.
We have been collectively moving through some strong Piscean energy in recent weeks. With Pisces being so strong, it may have been hard to not be pulled into old ways of dealing with old wounds or maybe there was a sudden plot change shifting the direction of your wound story. This new moon is giving us a chance to almost soak up all the pain from this healing process and to hopefully gather some greater clarity as we move into the next lunar cycle.
I am not a Christian and yet I can connect with the sentiments of this time of year. For me, when I think of Jesus, I think of compassion. The story of Jesus reminds me of what it means to truly surrender yourself for others, not martyrdom or manipulative sacrifice but genuinely being there for others.
Compassion is the knowing that we are not seperate…we are all connected…what makes you happy will bring me happiness and vice versa. It’s not rocket science, yet it seems to be very difficult for many of us to truly understand and practice.
The great thing about compassion is that it doesn't require anything
special to practice...just right intention.
